Cancer Bell Rings To Honor Bernard Teacher's Daughter

Bell Rings To Celebrate Cancer Battle Victory

Cancer Billboard

There were cheers and a few tears on Friday, October 27th, as the daughter of a Mehlville School District teacher was the first child to ring a very special bell on Children Hospital’s new highway billboard.

4 year old Avery Lucas was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago and immediately started chemotherapy treatments.  Avery’s mom Morgan is a physical education teacher at Bernard Middle and her brother attends Blades Elementary. 

The new Children’s Hospital billboard is located along Interstate 44, just east of Big Bend Boulevard.  Whenever a child completes chemotherapy treatments, the child gets to ring a special bell at the hospital which is linked to a bell that rings on the billboard.  Friends and supporters from Bernard and Blades gathered underneath the billboard, and at 3:30pm on October 27th Avery became the first child to ring the victory bell. 

Congratulations to Avery and her family!!

 

 

 

The proposed Choice School Of Innovation (CSOI) continues to take shape, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Scott Clark and his CSOI committee which consists of District staff members and parents.  The creation of a new elementary school is a complicated process with many interconnected parts, from curriculum to staffing to enrollment to transportation to food service to funding and much more. Putting all these different pieces together is both exciting and challenging.

Dr. Clark and District administrators continue to get lots of questions and feedback from the community, which are important parts of the school creation process.  Many details are still evolving and will continue to evolve right up until the time the Board of Education considers and votes on the plan at its January 18th meeting.  To answer some of those questions and to update the community on the work being done, the CSOI committee has prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).  We encourage everyone to read the attached document so they have a better understanding about the proposed school and how it will benefit the children of the Mehlville School District.
